In order to promote
the interest of young scientists in the field of inherited metabolic disorders,
we offer a reduced registration fee for trainees and fellows. This year we will be offering
12 travel awards in the amount of $1,000. Travel awards are available for students and
trainees at any level (doctoral, post-doctoral, resident, fellow, etc.). A limited number
of travel awards are also available for junior faculty (instructor or assistant professor
or equivalent level, within 5 years of beginning your first faculty position). Individuals
who wish to compete for these awards must submit an abstract (on-line), and also have a
letter from a sponsor sent to Leslie Lublink via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax
(503-210-1511) when the abstract is submitted. The support letter for junior faculty should
affirm that the applicant is within the first five years of a faculty rank. Trainee travel
award recipients are automatically considered for the Founder's Award competition at the meeting.
